40 Hour Working Week for Prisoners

As you know the Coalition Government are pressing ahead with the rehabilitation revolution.  As part of the Green Paper the above is an issue that may significantly impact on prisons, and as such the Executive agreed to obtain as much information from branches on this matter.

I would be grateful if you could set out any concerns you have, should this proposal be put forward at your branch.  To assist could you also reply to the questions posed on the attached pro-forma and return to the General Secretary by 4th July 2011 at Cronin House.

Thank you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.


Yours sincerely

General Secretary
